I am a scholar and teacher of postcolonial and Anglophone literatures. My specializations include Caribbean literature, Caribbean and British cultural entanglements, and the novel. Currently, I am Assistant Professor of English at San Francisco State University.
I completed my Ph.D. in English at Vanderbilt University in 2015. Prior to graduate work, I earned a B.A. in English Literature at Florida State University, where my interest in Caribbean literary studies was sparked during a semester in London.
My current project is "Small Places: Atlantic Archipelagoes and Literary Form," a book manuscript that studies the Anglophone Caribbean and imperial Britain as archipelagoes with surprisingly similar approaches to literary form. My work has appeared or is forthcoming in Anthurium: A Caribbean Studies Journal and Studies in the Novel and has also been supported by the Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities.
